Is Sarah Jessica Parker Endorsing Cynthia Nixon As New York Governor Or Not?

Close

The Sex and the City feuds continue. It seems like Sarah Jessica Parker may not be supporting her co-star, Cynthia Nixon's, bid for NY governor.

A Lukewarm Response

To date, Parker is the only SATC alum who hasn't publicly backed Nixon's campaign for governor of New York. Aside from just the political aspect, Parker's silence allegedly dooms any possibility of the long-rumored third movie.

Other cast members of the hit show, which spawned a hit movie in 2008 and a sequel in 2010, have rushed to endorse Nixon's challenge of Governor Andrew Cuomo for the Democratic nomination.

Parker, who played Carrie Bradshaw alongside Nixon as Miranda Hobbs, has yet to make a public endorsement of her friend and colleague.

"Cynthia has been my friend and colleague since we were little girls. I look forward to talking to her about her New York state gubernatorial bid," Parker said through her spokesperson.

Ringing Endorsements

This lukewarm non-endorsement is in stark contrast to the support of other SATC stars. Kristin Davis, who played Charlotte York, tweeted her support on the day Nixon officially announced her campaign.

"I am so proud of @CynthiaNixon, no one cares more than she does about EVERY person getting a fair change and a good education. I know that she would be an excellent Governor!" she gushed.

Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones on the long-running show and accompanying spinoff movies, was less enthusiastic but just as supportive.

"I support & respect any former colleague's right to make their own career choices," she posted.

Dooming Her Chances

Parker's hesitation may come from worry on her part. Her recent falling out with Cattrall seemed to hinder any chances of a third Sex and the City movie.

If Parker also alienates Nixon, it could be catastrophic for any possible future films.

"They could maybe do it without Cattrall, but they can't do without Nixon, too," claimed a source.

The much-publicized fight between Parker and Cattrall, which has been rumored for years, came to a head in the wake of Cattrall losing her brother.

After Parker publicly offered her condolences, Cattrall took to social media to call her out for being a fake non-friend who is out to restore her good girl image.

Such public disagreements could also hurt the premise of the show, which sees four high-powered Manhattan career women standing by each other no matter what.

"HBO is afraid the fallout will hurt viewership of the reruns and hurt the franchise," claimed an insider.

A Proudly Unqualified Lesbian

Nixon's gubernatorial bid was rumored for a long time, but she finally confirmed her plans a couple of weeks ago.

She's a controversial candidate, being a celebrity and proud member of the LGBTQ.

Nixon, who has been a vocal proponent of education and the restructuring of the MTA for many years, has been discussing her chances with political experts for months.

After former City Council Speaker Christine Quinn described her as an "unqualified lesbian," Nixon quickly adopted the description and utilized it for campaign buttons.
